Chapter 10. Expressions > Conditionals

Conditionals

Also known as If/Then statements, conditionals open up a host of possibilities. They allow you to use any circumstance that expressions can recognize—pretty much any numerical or Boolean condition in the timeline—as a condition for an event or a series of events to occur.

If you're really going to harness the power of automation in expressions, it's extremely helpful to understand how to set up conditionals. All kinds of effects shots feature a cause-and-effect relationship that you can set up logically with expressions so that, even if the timing or other parameters change, the amount of busywork involved in rippling those changes through is minimized.
